With the seventh edition of the Amity International Model United Nations, AMIMUN’18, on 19th , 20th and 21st January, 2018, Amity aims to consolidate AMIMUN’s worldwide recognition and its status as one of the top MUNs across the continent with the participation of delegates from across the world.

With our belief in harnessing excellence in the field of innovative education whilst keeping the holistic approach intact, Amity strives to make AMIMUN’18 an experience that will uphold the mission of encouraging students to pursue futuristic frontiers with ideas that will change the world. The teaching philosophy of Amity particularly focuses on values and sanskars. We believe that with such ideals, students will truly be able to pursue the path of complete development and grow to become the best versions of themselves.

It is my belief that by encouraging students to organize and participate in such events, we push the boundaries of creativity and innovation, and help them in thinking out of the box. At AMIMUN’18, they will participate as diplomats representing the members of the United Nations, and simulate various committees, agencies, specific organs, and programmes of the United Nations. By immersing their minds in an environment full of ideas pertaining to real issues that the world faces today, students will get a unique opportunity to become familiar with global concerns and the working of the United Nations. Delegates attempt to resolve regional and international problems in a powerful yet engaging manner through this entire process of debate and negotiations.

All participants, from India as well as from diverse regions of the globe such as the United Kingdom, Russia, China, Egypt, Brazil, Morocco, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Mauritius, will find AMIMUN'18 to be a convention where their unique talents and capabilities will contribute towards their professional growth, and would be important for learning that they are capable of creating a world where everyone can lead prosperous and fulfilling lives.

AMIMUN'18 will be a platform for the growth of the youth. As the leaders of tomorrow unite at this conference, they will hone their skills in leadership, teamwork, expository and persuasive writing, debating and negotiations, and learn the significance of these skills for personal development and a successful future. My genuine compliment and appreciation for the guidance provided by our worthy Vice Chancellor, AUUP, Dr. Balvinder Shukla, Dr. Alpana Kakkar, Chairperson, AMIMUN '18 and Deputy Dean, AUUP and to the excellent team consisting of its diligent members: Mr. Aditya Sundaray, Secretary-General, AMIMUN'18, Ms. Sanea Mahajan, Director-General, AMIMUN'18, Mr. Shikhir Sapra, Charge d'Affaires, AMIMUN'18, and the ever-supportive Organizing Committee and students. The continuous guidance and support from our visionary Chancellor, Dr. Atul Chauhan Ji has been greatly motivating and inspiring for ensuring the success of AMIMUN '18.

I welcome the youth coming to Amity and wish them a pleasant stay at our campus. I am certain that they will cherish the uniqueness of this experience of the Amity Universe as they participate in AMIMUN’18. The future of the world is in the hands of the youth, and empowering the youth is our mission.

I am delighted to welcome you to the seventh edition of the Amity International Model United Nations Conference on the theme ‘Ignition for Tomorrow’ to be held on January 19th, 20th and 21st, 2018 at Amity University Campus, Sector-125, Noida, U.P., India.

Combining its ideals of providing total, integrated and trans-cultural quality education through a progressive approach, and expanding the horizons of knowledge, Amity presents AMIMUN’18 as a means to encourage interaction among students from across the globe and provide them the opportunity to take part in diplomatic discussions on compelling issues.

A Model United Nations is an academic simulation of the various proceedings of the United Nations, with students representing various countries. Not only has the popularity of MUNs soared, they have also established themselves at prestigious platforms for inculcating in students myriad skills ranging from leadership to communication.

Since its inception in 2011, AMIMUN has helped participants from across the world to witness the extreme relevance of learning international affairs and understanding the working and significance of the United Nations. Peace-making, security, conflict prevention, social progress, better living standards and human rights are some of the numerous aspects that are emphasized to the youth at AMIMUN.

The theme for AMIMUN’18 is “Ignition for Tomorrow”, and that truly sums up our objective. At this international conference, we aim to expose students to a global perspective through a spark that will stir nations to come together and create a world where we find innovation and peaceful co-existence going hand in hand. This MUN will be a unique convention, with over 400 delegates from 60 colleges from all around the world, which will give birth to a new generation of strong, confident and, above all, compassionate leaders.

I take this excellent opportunity to convey my best wishes to the delegates from all over the world and wish them a great learning experience as well as a pleasant stay in Delhi NCR.

I am certain that the hard work and commitment of the organising committee members and the Secretariat will make AMIMUN’18 a glorious success!

It gives me great pleasure to send this message to Amity International Model United Nations 2018 organized by the Amity University, Noida.

The United Nations takes pride in, and extensively works towards engaging with youth to promote the 5 P’s People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnership, a key feature to attain Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. Through its collaborations with Model UNs in India, we endeavour to carry forward these values of Agenda 2030 to promote a peaceful, equal and a sustainable environment for all.

The AMIMUN’18 comes at a crucial time, with the United Nations and all Member States emphasizing the importance of the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals. The 17 Goals try to achieve a peaceful and sustainable model of development that is inclusive and leaves no one behind. The youth can play a very important role in making sure that the benefits of these goals reach all. This principle of ‘leave no one behind’ should play an important role for all the delegates participating in AMIMUN’18 and they should aim to tackle the global issues being discussed in the Model UN through an equitable, inclusive approach.

This Model UN simulation gives you the opportunity to understand the working of the United Nations system and the complex international challenges it is trying to address. I hope you get an opportunity to not only think about global challenges but also come up with innovative solutions to deal with these vast global challenges.

I would like to congratulate the organizing team of AMIMUN’18 for putting together this conference and I am certain that your MUN will bring students closer to the universal ideals and values of the United Nations.

My Best Wishes.
